Background Extravaganza

And I still have nine more 'sides' to go. When I was down with strep, I barely did any writing, so I'm way ahead in backgrounds for the moment. Moods. Walnut stained tea bags, paper scraps, homemade postage, rubber stamped images. There is a vellum overlay stapled to the top of this page, because I DO NOT want to write on this part. Luz. Papers and border from Veronica. Scan of a canvas I did for my older bro, the Bobfather, printed on vellum. Celebrate. My Daddy-O has moved to a new office, I'm so proud!!!! This page is all about that. Invitation, slanted pocket, paper scrap, stickers, stamp pad impressions, yellow dye background. Installation Instructions. Scan of one of my vintage mission postcards. Graphic from work. Ledger paper from Tuscan Rose. Geese magazine image. Rub-on flowers, red Basic Grey paper scrap. Yellow dye splashed on the background first. Drawn Home. Windows, mannequin from Anthropologie. Pumpkins from a Safeway coupon flyer. You know, I'd really NEVER need to buy another thing -- every possible image I ever want comes to me in the mail. This page feels sooo goooood to me, balanced, beckoning. Asian Bloom. Flowers from a Jackson-Perkins flyer that came to work, gawd they have lovely flowers. Magazine images. Green twinkling H20 paint. Crazy gorgeous. And I love that dress! Sassy. Paper scraps, #5's from a magazine, envelope liner, ledger paper from Tuscan Rose, printed out on the left side with a background from a free Roben-Marie Smith download. Wooden word. This actually started out with the image of the guy pressing on his back -- I was thinking, 'How many times must I be a pain in my OWN A**?!!' -- and the page evolved from there. Raising Sand. Ad from a Rounder flyer for an album in my top ten of perfect LPs. Have you heard it? DO. Blue, orange, and black & white scraps, the rest from the brochure order form. It's All About Me.Papers, stickers, bits, borders. Little girl with cat & license plate are Tuscan Rose images. Tucked behind the narrow strip is a print out of one my old truck photos. Masks from my masterboard. Help. A visualization of communicating with the Universe, the Universe always there. Always. 2 Magazine images. I'm in love with the blue paint, Phthalo blue ... it's beginning to turn up everywhere. Write. This is my idea of a perfect page. LOTS of room for writing, but a perfect image, also, or collection of them. Magazine images, rub ons, stickers.

I love your backgrounds. They leave enough space to journal on & spark your creativity. I enjoy your blog so I nominated you for an award. Come to my blog and see.

Love seeing all your journal backgrounds! Do you write straight on them from this stage or do you add more paint as well?

Usually by the time I scan/post, they're 'done' and nothing gets added but writing. SOMETIMES a piece of ephemera shows up, a ticket stub or something like that ...
